The Vickie Lynn Belk Scholarship Foundation was created to honor Vickie Belk and to provide scholarships in her memory.
Vickie attended Minnie Howard Elementary School and graduated from T. C. Williams High School in 1969. She earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Education in 1974 from St. Augustine College in Raleigh, NC and she was a Management Analyst in the Office of Operations and Finance in the Department of Agriculture in Washington, D.C.
The role of the Board of the Scholarship Foundation is to assist in raising funds for the graduating seniors at Oakland Baptist Church (OBC) in Alexandria, VA and to provide opportunities that will continue the legacy of Vickie Lynn Belk.
Approximately 100 scholarships have been awarded to the the graduates of OBC. Through this scholarship, Vickie’s love for education and the youth of OBC continues.
In 2009, the Vickie Belk Scholarship Banquet was held at the Courtyard Marriott on Kenmore Avenue in Alexandria, Virginia. The scholarship recipients were: Christeena Burks, Michael Carr and Kamaria Wentt. Here are some pictures from that event.
